reporters and people who want to analyze how things are going to wind up. you see someone like marco rubio juxtaposed immediately with someone like rand paul. these are both people who people expect will at least entertain a run in 2016. with rubio, you didn't hear anything on immigration which is something he's been pushing through congress, but it's not necessarily something that will play well here in front of a conservative audience. but that tells you why marco rubio is someone so key on immigration because he can actually -- he's well trusted with this group, though. he didn't bring it up today. rand paul on the other hand, sticking to his libertarian philosophy and really got very tepid applause on most things that he talked about on drones. much better received on spending, however. >> domenico, thank you for swrining swrin i joining us. mns m msnbc political analyst, david corn. and joy reid, managing editor of the grio.com. david, between allen west saying there's nothing so fearful to progressives on this green earth than a black american who wants a better life, and rand paul d

are for the future of the republican party. big names that we're seeing today this hour in fact. senator marco rubio, who as we understand will kind of be following on what he said during his response to president obama's state of the union speech, the theme of his remarks will be why limited government is something that is good for the middle class. and then i think something really to watch will be the remarks of senator rand paul. he comes right after senator rubio. and the -- i will tell you, his camp is setting expectations pretty high here. he sees this kind of following on that filibuster of the president's cia director nomination last week as sort of his chance to cement his role here not just as a big name, but as a name for the republican mainstream. so we'll see if he's able to do that. but he's going to be trying to take i'm told a very serious leadership tone and give what i've been told is a uniting speech. we will see if he is able to deliver on that, suzanne. >> all right. brianna, we'll check back in with you later in that conference to see his speech as well as many of the others.

divisions in the republican party were easy to see today at cpac. senators rand paul and marco rubio mentioned as 2016 contenders put out different versions of visions for the gop's way forward. one say the party right now is a relic. the other says it has to stick to the basics. very different messages. let's watch them. >> the gop of old has grown stale and moss covered. i don't think we need to name any names. >> we don't need a new idea. there is an idea. the idea is called america. and it still works. >> what in the world does this first guy talk -- first, he's out there, rand paul, like he's elected for a couple months and comes out there and immediately slams, guess who? who's he trashing? >> take your pick, mitch mcconnell, mitt romney. >> john mccain. >> john mccain is who he's -- >> look at the division here. >> wait a minute. get to this point. let's let him have his point. here's the guy, new voice of the republican party, he and the guy from texas, ted cruz, trashing all the people that have been there before him. >> right. but he's out there saying, we need new ideas. w
. the two big speeches this afternoon from florida senator marco rubio as well as rand paul. both of those people are seen as potential 2016 republicans and that's why we're watching them here. they end up getting a big applause from the conservatives in the audience. both about equal applause. marco rubio was talking about his focus on the middle class and he responded to a lot of liberal critics by saying, the republican party doesn't need new ideas. the idea is the american people. on the other hand, you end up having rand paul who ended up saying the republican party needed a change and change in a way, ad hearing mort to the constitution. taking up the charges his father had. >> it sounds like the different factions inside the party are very much on display at the conference. >> reporter: they are. and of course, rand paul does represent what his father brought in particularly talked about the filibuster that he led on drones on the u.s. senate recently. but overall, the republican party is still the same republican party that you would have come to cpac in 2010, 2009, 2011. this is n

to be emerging from the first days at cpac. you had marco rubio saying conservatives don't really need new ideas. then you had rand paul calling the gop stale. you had the first cpac immigration, marco rubio didn't mention immigration. >> reporter: i think it is not a contradiction but a distinction. ideas are not the same as solutions. i think what i hear rand paul saying, we have to have solutions to people's problems. not just say i'm for this and i'm for that. what does that mean? why will that make my life better? what i hear marco rubio saying, a more generic statement saying the ideas, the principles we believe in are timeless truth that have been true on this planet from the beginning of its existence. we don't need new ideas. what we need are solutions. and really, marco rubio and rand paul are sort of the yin and the yang of conservatism. rubio does a phenomenal job of articulating and rand paul articulates specifics on policy. i think if you were to run them as a ticket. if you told most of the conservatives right now, that would be the ticket in some order in 2016. there would be a t
. senators rand paul and marco rubio mentioned as 2016 contenders put out different versions of visions for the gop's way forward. one say the party right now is a relic. the other says it has to stick to the basics. very different messages. let's watch them. >> the gop of old has grown stale and moss covered. i don't think we need to name any names. >> we don't need a new idea. there is an idea. the idea is called america. and it still works. >> what in the world does this first guy talk -- first, he's out there, rand paul, like he's elected for a couple months and comes out there and immediately slams, guess who? who's he trashing? >> take your pick, mitch mcconnell, mitt romney. >> john mccain. >> john mccain is who he's -- >> look at the division here. >> wait a minute. get to this point. let's let him have his point. here's the guy, new voice of the republican party, he and the guy from texas, ted cruz, trashing all the people that have been there before him. >> right. he's out there saying we need new ideas. what is the new idea? it's liberty. marco rubio says we have good ideas.
marco rubio and senator rand paul. had very different messages about the current state of the party. senator rubio said, we don't need any new ideas. the idea is called america and it still works. and here's what rand paul had to say. >> there is nothing conservative about bailing out wall street. our party is in encumbered by an inconsistent approach to freedom. the gop of old has grown stale and moss-covered. >> who's right? has it grown stale and moss-covered? >> listen, i think there's nothing wrong with the principles of our party. republicans have not done, as effective job as we should in terms of talking about our principles in terms average people can appreciate. why balancing the budget, would be good for the american family. we have to do a better job of helping people understand what our principles are in terms of what they deal with every day. >> there was a surprise this week, senator rob portman, who's a close friend of yours, and from home, ohio, said that he has had a change of heart of gay marriage. he'll support gay marriage after learning his own 21-year-old son
kicked off the cpac conference, closely followed by senator marco rubio. rick santorum, coming in third, governor chris christie at number four, representative paul ryan, then governor scott walker. a front-page story in "the baltimore sun," saying he would seek office himself, and others. james is following the story from politico. hohmann is joining us live on the phone. thank you for joining us. guest: thank you. host: is nothing more than a beauty contest. was veryis straw poll close. it's sort of codify our view that when and paul and marco rubio are the two fan favorites right now with the grass roots. marco rubio -- everybody expected rand paul would win the straw poll, including people who did not support him, especially coming out of this filibuster last week, so i think some people were surprised at how close it was, paul getting one- quarter of the votes and marco rubio getting one-quarter of the votes. rick santorum only got 8%, so it was quite a drop-off. they spoke back-to-back on thursday. that thatware for now is where they are hanging their hopes. host: getting attentio
is for citizenship. saw it with marco rubio, his speech at cpac, immigration reform, he doesn't even mention it. we are seeing there's a wing in the republican party when they hear citizenship, they here amnesty. and that's why they're in trouble with this. if you look at the polls, most republicans actually want a comprehensive immigration reform, something like 60%. you see this dance that these figures have to take around the issue. >> sam, it is not like rand paul didn't know. this speech was on his schedule awhile. he knew his day was coming and he was going to be talking about this in front of this audience. it seems easy to keep your story straight. >> you would think so if planning the speech. keep in mind where he came from not even a year or two years ago. in 2011 he cosponsored a bill that outlawed birth right citizenship. children wouldn't be granted citizenship. 2010, he ran for the senate, he had a proposal calling for underground electrical fence under the border to prevent people crossing. >> underground electrical fence? >> yes. >> presumably in addition to an above ground electric
that you will see out of here. marco rubio did not address immigration in his speech. these are big issues that are going to be where is the republican party moving? >> where is it moving and to your point there, david, i will shift it over to rana, and 17 speakers is what the chair said will be at cpac this year, and that is different, and you look at marco rubio, and yet not mentioning immigration. >> right. >> and the first day with was all about immigration. >> right, exactly, and the other thing that you have not heard a lot about aside from paul ryan's budget plans is the economy. that is so crucial, because i actually believe that that lack of a coherent economic policy is one of the key reason s fs for republican defeat in the presidential elections, and you hear a lot about how they didn't follow the demographic shifts in america, and i believe it is more fundamental to not trickle down the supply-side theories which are clearly broken and not providing answers to the stru structural shifts that are happening and everything else will flow from that, because you can't talk about fo
amnesty why on earth is marco rubio and these bushes pushing for it. they are panicked and demoralized after the last election. stop panicking republicans. liberal writing the obituary of the republican party right now remind me of new homeowners at the height of the housing bubble. people announce their complete triumph moments before their crushing defeat. our job -- our job is to ensure democrats have that crushing defeat. thank you and ill take some questions. [applause] >> go ahead. >> do you believe that chris christie should have been invited to cpac this year? >> the nominee? >> chris christie invited to speak? >> oh, did you see his convention speech? >> yes. >> it was really bad. [laughter] havet say, as you know, i loved chris christie i am a single voter against amnesty so christie is off my list. [applause] our next speaker ted cruz is still on my list. [applause] >> good evening. i'm from ohio. is there any advice you can give us young, vocal, black conservatives for dealing with the liberal mob and will you go on a date with me? [applause] >> yes, absolutely, young man,
, under way. rising gop stars marco rubio and rand paul kicked things off at the first day of cpac, each providing a vision of the future for their party. the junior senator from florida was the first to address the crowd, speaking about fiscal responsibility, and the need to defend social values. >> we believe in solving our debt problem. because it's hurting job creation. the only real approach that solves it is the combination of fiscal discipline and rapid economic growth. there's no tax increase in the world that will solve our long-term debt problem. just because i believe that states should have the right to define marriage in a traditional way does not make me a bigot. the people who are close-minded in american politics are the people that love to preach about the certainty of science with regards to our climate. but ignore the absolute fact that science has proven that life begins at conception. >> rubio also refuted the notion that america needs to change its ways. >> as soon as i'm done speaking, i'll tell you what the criticism of the left is going to be. one, he drank too m
